Floyd Mayweather Gives Huge Update On Future Boxing Plans

Floyd Mayweather has announced he will not be making a return to boxing - while also rubbishing claims he is running out of money.

'Money' had announced last year that he would be returning to the ring in an Instagram post.

Rumours have also surfaced that he was set to take on Adrian Broner but Mayweather has squashed all speculation and revealed he will not be returning.

The 43-year-old told Fight Hype: "These are just rumours. I'm retired. I'm finished with boxing. I stay in shape.

"I am not retired from business. Would I fight with McGregor? People make $370million. I make that in one night. I made over $320m twice. It only took me 36 minutes or 28 minutes, something like that.

"If this guy [Broner] wants to fight Floyd I say you guys sell out little arenas and do some little baby moves, not bad, but I'm older and a lot wiser, meaning I don't want to end up like my uncle Rog [Roger Mayweather]. A lot of fighters don't know when to give up.

"Even the fight with McGregor it was smart on my behalf and smart on his behalf. I can make more money than any other fighter.

"Even if we did it again it's entertainment and it's business. I'm not boxing - no boxing at all.

"I'm done, I'm retired and I love my life. I enjoy being retired."

His last fight came against UFC superstar Conor McGregor in August 2017.

Mayweather did stress that he hasn't retired from business as well as lay into those who have said he is running out of money.

"If I see an opportunity and have a little fun and make $600million - why not.

"If I was to come back why would I fight a fighter that only sells out little cities?

"If I am going to do something it's got to be worth it. But there is no one else that makes me worth getting back in that ring.

"People say Floyd ain't got no money. I don't monitor no one else's pockets. Am I comfortable? Do I make seven figures every month? Do I have smart investments? Absolutely.

"I am retired from the sport of boxing. I am enjoying life. I don't want for nothing."

The Michigan native is set to turn his hand to coaching, the same path his later uncle Roger Mayweather followed.

He also discussed the training footage he uploaded to social media, which had people speculating on a return.

"I'm just enjoying myself in this pandemic," the undefeated star said.

"In the gym I'm just working out, cardio, and trying to make my body look good on the outside.

"I do some other work out for the inner body also.

"With everything that's going on right now, you can just watch TV and work out. If I'm not watching TV I'm working out. I take walks and watch movies.

"I coach and box in the gym and that's all I can do."
